„what about the commentariat?“ - WATC

WATC circles around those who comment on existing publications as news articles, posts on social media platforms. While the utterances of this commentariat are often regarded worthless, pathetic or even dangerous I am prefer to see it as an authentic source of expressive energy. I have started to develop an interface (based on machine learning) to transform textual utterances into participatory musical expressions.
A series of gatherings, discussions and dinners at „Ständige Vertretung“ seeks to increase and improve the aesthetic criteria for this transformation.
